Welcome to Year 2! Please keep an eye on our class page for lots of important information as well as photos and children's updates. We have had a busy start to the term first with our Multi Cultural Topic of Australia and now onto 'What's in the Sky' with a focus on Space!
Take a look at what we have been doing in class.
I hope you all enjoyed the half term holiday, the children were really excited to share their news on Monday! We have had a busy few days back in school and are looking forward to our World Book Day celebrations tomorrow and our Eisteddfod Friday.
Thank you also for the beautiful Welsh Heritage Homework which the children presented to the class today. It was lovely to hear how inspired and proud they are of the heroic ladies in their families.

Next week we will be moving onto multiplication! We already count in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s in class so please could you continue to work on this at home. We will also be working on the 3 and 4 times table. Below are some of the songs we will be using to aid our learning – I thought they may be useful to you! You should be able to view them if you copy and paste the link. (Written in Blue) If you are unable to do this please go onto www.youtube.com and type the names of the songs which are written in red on here.

**Important from the PTA for the Aviva grant**
Can we ask all parents, family, friends - everyone! To vote for us please:
We've entered the Aviva Community Fund to ask for £10,000 for IT equipment for the school - a class set of Chromebooks and an ActivPanel interactive board.
Voting opens today (Tuesday 23rd) at 9am - if you could spare a few minutes to vote for Cwmlai Primary School IT Improvement on the link below it would be massively appreciated! And if your family, friends, neighbours and anyone you've ever known could too, that would be amazing!
Only the projects with the highest votes go through into the final round of considerations and the school could really do with some new equipment.
Voting closes on 20th November, so don't delay!!
You might have to copy and paste the above address, rather than just clicking on it.
Cwmlai PTA and all Cwmlai Primary Staff
Please note:some of the maths games which I have allocated this evening for the weekend may not work on tablets. If you have access to a laptop or desktop they should work on there. I’ve put a variety of games onto the pupil accounts so they can practice over the weekend and next week.
Welcome to Dosbarth Glas
Welcome to Year 2! We have an exciting year ahead and I hope your child is looking forward to it as much as I am! Please keep checking the class page and twitter for updates, photographs and information related to our class.
Some important information:
PE lessons are held on Friday morning - please ensure your child has a kit they are able to leave in school. Remember to write the child's name on each item of clothing including the kit bag. Kits will be sent home each half term.
Tuck Shop - children will have the opportunity to buy fruit each day - if you would like your child to do this please make sure they have a wallet in school - this will be sent home each Friday to top up ready for the following week.
Homework - this will be sent home every Friday and will need to be returned the following Monday.
Spellings - your child will have spellings each week - these will be stuck into their homework books or if they don't return their book it will be put in their book bag each Friday.
Reading Books - please listen to your child read over the weekends and comment in the yellow book provided. Books sent home each Friday to be returned Monday.
School will be open as normal today. The school site has been assessed and the yard mostly cleared. Please take your
time and stay safe as some of the pavements on the way to school are icy. No late marks will be given - just please arrive safely.
WEATHER UPDATE - FOR THURSDAY 1ST MARCH
We had an e mail from the Local Authority at 2.10 this afternoon which goes as follows;-
We would also recommend that you use the following statement when sending a text to parents or posting this information on social media/school websites:
“Based on current Met Office forecasts of severe winter weather, which is expected to have a significant impact from tomorrow, Thursday 1 March and in to the weekend, the local authority has advised us to close the school tomorrow, Thursday 1 March and Friday 2 March. An update will be provided over the weekend in respect of Monday, 5 March.”
Therefore based on the above information Cwmlai Primary will be closed tomorrow
We will keep in touch via text.
